Face and Object Recognition: How Do They Differ?
Pages 44

T his chapter reviews an extensive set of ndings arguing that visual recogni-tion of faces and objects differs critically in style of computational process-ing. It provides a tutorial-style review of what face-recognition researchers mean by “holistic/congural” processing and describes the multiple paradigms showing that holistic/congural processing is limited to the structural form of upright faces. It then brings together several streams of literature to present a theoretical case that holistic/congural processing and part-based processing differ in patterns of sensitivity to prior experience.
